If you are experiencing blurry images on your headset, maybe it is time to clean the PSVR 2 lenses.
Over time, the lenses can accumulate dust, smudges, and fingerprints, causing images to appear less clear and sharp. Fortunately, cleaning the lenses is a simple and effective solution that can restore the clarity and quality of your VR experience.
In this guide, we'll show you how to clean your PSVR 2 lenses without damaging them, so you can enjoy crystal-clear image quality every time you play the visually stunning titles in the PSVR 2 games list.
What is the best tool to clean PSVR 2 lenses?
Sony has explicitly warned PSVR 2 owners to not use paper products such as paper towels or tissues unless specifically intended for cleaning lenses. They recommend soft, dry cloth, made specifically for cleaning lenses.
The best tool to clean PSVR 2 lenses is a microfiber cloth. These soft and gentle cloths are designed specifically for cleaning delicate surfaces like camera lenses, eyeglasses, and electronic screens.
They are made of very fine fibres that can effectively remove smudges, fingerprints, and dust without scratching or damaging the surface of the lens. Several PSVR 2 users found this microfiber cloth from Koala super effective.
How to clean PSVR 2 lenses
Keeping your PSVR 2 lenses clean is essential for an optimal VR experience, but it can be tricky to clean them without causing damage or scratches. If you are not using the right tools, you could end up damaging the anti-glare coating or even scratching the lens.
To clean PSVR 2 lenses effectively, use a clean, dry microfiber cloth and start in the centre of the lens, then gently work your way outwards in a circular motion. In case the smudge/film doesn't come off, apply a little more force.
While it's not necessary to wear gloves while using a microfiber cloth, it's a good idea to avoid touching the cloth with oily or dirty hands. Oils and dirt from your hands can transfer to the cloth and potentially get on the lenses, which could leave streaks or smudges.
